By July 31, 2022 No Comments

Over 1,100 nits in the cheap mid-range. The Poco X4 Pro 5G comes with a lot of hardware highlights for an RRP of around US$ 300. On top of 5G make stronger, the successor to the Poco X3 Pro gets various improvements, including a very smart AMOLED display with 120 Hz. Then again, the X4 Pro doesn’t make every part better …

For many users, one in all essentially the most important innovations of the Poco X4 Pro may properly be the introduction of the 5G standard in the Poco X Pro lineup. Then again, this increase in connectivity comes at the price of decreased performance because the Snapdragon 860 in the Poco X3 Pro is nominally stronger than the Snapdragon 695 that now equips the successor. 

The display of the Poco X4 Pro 5G is a tall step forward and no compromises are made here. Xiaomi no longer depends on an LCD panel for its mid-range smartphone, nonetheless rather on AMOLED expertise with peak values of over 1,000 nits. The refresh rate is detached 120 Hz.

The suggested retail price for the Poco X4 Pro 5G is around US$ 315.

Case – Xiaomi smartphone with punch gap

Colours of the Poco X4 ProAlthough the Poco X4 Pro 5G is comparatively heavy at 205 grams, it is lighter than its predecessor. However the Pro model of the X4 sequence will not be really compact either. The glass backside is adorned with “laser stripes” which spread over the casing savor the lights of small spotlights. The mid-range smartphone is available in three various colours: Laser Black, Laser Blue and Poco Yellow. The Poco X4 Pro has IP 53 certification, which means that it is officially mud and water resistant.

The make quality and really feel are on a high level for a smartphone around US$ 300. Certain, the plastic frame deprives the Poco X4 Pro of some of the value of a high-pause phone, nonetheless it surely doesn’t really feel cheap. Then again, the flat glass panel encasing the cameras on the back feels a bit beefy in the hands.

In contrast to the predecessor, the manufacturer cuts back on Corning Gorilla Glass 6; handiest Glass 5 is ragged for the Poco X4 Pro. The edges on the highest and bottom of the 6.67-paddle display are moderately sized, which is mirrored in the stable display surface ratio of 86%.

Tools – Poco X4 Pro 5G with 3.5 mm jack

The Poco X4 Pro 5G doesn’t have any real features of criticism by way of instruments for an cheaper mid-range smartphone, offering all the features that one may reasonably seek information from from this price range. These comprise stereo speakers, an IR blaster, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 5.1, an NFC chip for contactless payment, dual-SIM and the Always On purpose.

In addition to the version with 128 GB of UFS storage and 6 GB of RAM, there is also the selection of 256 GB with 8 GB RAM (RRP: US$ 315). The internal storage can be expanded by as a lot as 1 TB via microSD cards. Although external peripherals and storage devices can be connected to the Poco smartphone, the USB-C port handiest works according to the 2.0 standard. Wired image output is due to this fact not that you can mediate of, nonetheless Miracast is supported.

microSD Card reader

The Xiaomi phone has a hybrid card slot, which means that two nano-SIM cards or a microSD card can be inserted. By way of copying hasten, the Poco X4 will not be exactly fast at fair 12 MB/s; a Samsung Galaxy M23 copies images more than three instances faster. On the various hand, the microSD performance (in combination with the AV PRO V60 reference card) is convincing in the Corrupt Platform Disk Take a look at.

Software – Poco X4 Pro with Android 11

Xiaomi combines the Android machine with its in-apartment user interface MIUI for Poco in version 13. At the time of evaluate, nonetheless, the Poco phone is handiest based on Android 11, which is better brooding about the RRP of around US$ 300. The safety patches from July 2022 are very as a lot as date

The Poco X4 Pro ought to detached certainly catch an upgrade to Android 12, nonetheless the manufacturer doesn’t present any official information on this. The update guarantee of the Xiaomi 12 sequence, i.e. three major Android updates and four years of safety updates, doesn’t apply to the Poco sequence. More than 3 years, including 2 major upgrades, ought to detached not be expected.

With MIUI 13 for Poco, the X4 Pro uses a redesigned MiSans font, a variety of latest widgets, and make stronger for Google’s “Material You” invent. We cannot make out any advertising banners or ads within the MiUI 13 interface, for example when an app is installed. Generally speaking, these so-called MSA (MIUI Blueprint Ads) can be disabled fairly easily in the machine settings beneath “Passwords & Safety”.

Communication & GNSS – Xiaomi smartphone with NFC

For house WLAN, the Poco X4 Pro affords the ac standard with WiFi 5, including the 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency ranges, which ensures stable transfer rates in our measurements. The rates are on par with the low-priced mid-range competition, nonetheless 322-349 mbit/s will not be really fast. In combination with our Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 reference router, the Poco X4 Pro proves to be consistent when sending data, nonetheless the initial phase of receiving performs poorly beneath trying out.

In addition to the fast 5G standard, the mid-range smartphone from Xiaomi helps access to a total of 17 LTE bands – all the relevant LTE frequencies for the German-speaking space, including band 28, are covered. The Poco phone is also properly outfitted for traveling, such as in america.

The Poco X4 Pro uses the main satellite programs GPS (L1), GLONASS (G1), BeiDou (B1) and Galileo (E1) as properly as SBAS for localization. In expose to evaluate tracking accuracy in practice, we took the mid-range phone on a brief shuttle and recorded the route together with a Garmin Venu 2 for comparison functions.

We savor the tracking capabilities of the Poco X4 Pro for essentially the most part. Then again, deviations from the selected routes are typically clearly viewed upon examining the GPS historical past in detail. Regardless of adlescent inaccuracies, the Xiaomi phone is suitable for navigation tasks, nonetheless a satellite repair indoors takes a very lengthy time and the signal power will not be very pronounced with an SNR value of 23.

Thanks to the properly functioning microphones, the Poco X4 Pro also impresses by way of video calling – examined via Skype – and the speakers.

Cameras – Poco X4 Pro 5G with 108 MP

Customers ought to detached not have high expectations of the Poco X4 Pro’s selfie camera, nonetheless the photo quality is stable. In tough lighting fixtures circumstances, the 16-megapixel pictures are usually overexposed, especially in portrait mode, and the sky appears to be like burned out. Furthermore, the tender focal level is rather pronounced.

On paper, Poco has made major improvements to the rear-facing main camera, which now has 108 megapixels and an aperture of f/1.9. As is usual for this price range, optical image stabilization is absent, so images turn into blurry and out of focal level relatively fast in the dark. The illumination is also not very apt. But for the price, the photo quality achieved in smart environment is appealing. Image sharpness and contrasts are convincing in daylight.

The 108 MP camera is accompanied by a 118 diploma ultra-broad-angle camera with 8 megapixels and a 2-megapixel macro lens. The ultra-broad-angle camera has stable photo quality, nonetheless affords diminutive detail and low sharpness.

Although the main camera of the Poco X4 Pro has a very high resolution, video can handiest be recorded at as a lot as 1080p at 30 fps – a greater frame rate or a UHD choice will not be available. Switching between the main and ultra-broad-angle lenses at some stage in video recording is also not that you can mediate of. The celebrated video modes of the X3 Pro, such as dual video, are detached on board.

Verdict on the Poco X4 Pro 5G

The Poco X4 Pro is a profitable mid-range phone with handiest a few weak features. The high performance of the predecessor was sacrificed in favor of 5G connectivity, which on the other hand suits the Xiaomi smartphone properly. The installed Snapdragon 695 affords very aggressive performance rates for the price range of less than US$ 300 and satisfactory graphics energy for HFR gaming. 

The mid-range sequence has made a tall leap by way of display. The installed 120 Hz OLED panel affords not handiest a grand greater contrast ratio than the IPS display of the Poco X3 Pro, nonetheless it surely is also brighter and better illuminated. Then again, this also increases the price (RRP) for the Poco X4 Pro by US$ 50 compared to its predecessor.

A pity that Xiaomi continues to spend outdated Android for its cheaper smartphones. Unfortunately, price-unsleeping customers hardly have any alternatives to engage from, since Samsung doesn’t promise any update guarantees with its Galaxy M23 5G either. After all, the Koreans’ entry-level instrument already has Android 12. Another level of criticism extends to the stamina of the Poco X4 Pro in see of the 5000 mAh battery and the runtimes of the realme 9 5G.

Investors not wanting to enact without 5G in the mid-range will secure a stable package overall in the Poco X4 Pro.

Customers who secure the Poco X4 Pro a diminutive too heavy and unwieldy will secure an equally stable mid-range phone in the Redmi Display 11, which doesn’t feature 5G nonetheless is available at a grand decrease price.
